Generating XML from an html form and sending an attachment to e-mail


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a simple html form.

<form action="mail.php" method="POST">
<p>Name</p> <input type="text" name="name">
<p>Email</p> <input type="text" name="email">
<p>Phone</p> <input type="text" name="phone">
<p>Message</p><textarea name="message" rows="6" cols="25"></textarea><br />
<input type="submit" value="Send"><input type="reset" value="Clear">

I send a simple recap to e-mail through PHP. Simultaneously with this recapitulation, I would like to generate XML, which would send it in an e-mail attachment. Somehow it's not working. Would anyone help?

$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$phone = $_POST['phone'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
$formcontent=" From: $name \n Phone: $phone \n Call Back: $call \n Website: $website \n Priority: $priority \n Type: $type \n Message: $message";
$recipient = "**************";
$subject = "Contact Form";
$mailheader = "From: $email \r\n";
$doc = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'UTF-8');
$doc->formatOutput = true;
$xmlRoot = $doc->createElement("xml");
$xmlRoot = $doc->appendChild($xmlRoot);
$root = $doc->createElement('OrderDetails');
$root = $doc->appendChild($root);
$ele1 = $doc->createElement('name');
$mail->addStringAttachment($xml->asXML(), "xml.xml");
mail($recipient, $subject, $formcontent, $mailheader) or die("Error!");
echo "Thank You!" . " -" . "<a href='form.html' style='text-decoration:none;color:#ff0099;'> Return Home</a>";

Thanks for any help!!

"Its not working" is NOT a helpful description. What is the error, if any? What is it doing different than you expect? Do you have error reporting turned on? Is there any errors in your httpd log?
